Hi, am after a bit of input!

DS has just received his vaccination reminder for his 1y jabs and MMR is on the list to be administered.

AIBU to be worried about him having the MMR? I've scoured the internet and everything I've read states that the claim linking the MMR to autism is utter shite but I can't help but be worried. DH says if I'm worried, he'll pay for he individual vaccines.

What is the general consensus on this? Should we pay for the individual jabs?

You are being unreasonable. Any claims linking the MMR to autism have been soundly and thoroughly debunked.

Despite the Internet hysteria the vast majority of people give their child the MMR without any fuss at all.

You are being unreasonable
Massively flawed and widely discredited study, now the impact of the previous anti-vaxxers is contributing to measles outbreaks in various places.

Do you stop your child from watching TV because it will make their eyes go square?

Research research...

In the grand scheme of things, I'd rather my DC alive with autism than brown bread because of one of those diseases I didn't vaccinate against.

YABU "scouring the internet" is a bad idea

Ignore people who tell you to conduct your own research. They are fools.
